Frank Warren: Full Confidence Dubois Would Knock Whyte Out!

By Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

DILLIAN WHYTE is under serious pressure to deliver against Oscar Rivas.

That is because last week Joe Joyce dealt with the guy who was comfortably beating Rivas back in January.

Joyce outpointed Bryant Jennings with a good performance from the Rio Olympic silver medallist at the O2.

It was earlier this year when Jennings was on his way to a wide points win over Rivas until the Colombian pulled a 12th-round stoppage out of nowhere.

So if Joyce can beat Jennings in just his 10th professional fight then what should Whyte be doing to Rivas in his 26th outing?

Certainly winning comfortably if he truly believes he should be beating the top men in the division.

Whyte has been in the WBC’s No. 1 position for over 600 days and not got a shot at the title.

I’m not sure who is to blame for that but the people looking after his career surely should have been pushing harder for his opportunity.

Now he is facing Rivas at the O2 and it is hard to see how this is pay-per-view fare.

Whyte may be closing in on a world title shot but I would have full confidence Daniel Dubois would knock him out.

I still want Dubois to have a few more fights before he takes on someone like Whyte.

But if we had to put him in now then the British heavyweight champion would come out on top.

He looked fantastic last week when he knocked out Nathan Gorman in the fifth round to claim the Lonsdale belt.

Gorman deserves huge credit for putting his unbeaten record on the line so early in his career.

We will help the Nantwich man rebuild and, at 23, there is plenty of time to get to the top of the sport.

Much has been made of Dubois’ knockout power but what was more impressive was his superb jab.

Dubois will be back in action in September and it won’t be long before he overtakes the likes of Whyte.

Dubois looked great against Gorman, however Gorman was an untested prospect Whyte isnt. Joyce looked like a bag of d1ks as usual, why not just put them in against each other instead of mouthing off about Whyte.

When you repeat a lie over and over again you might eventually start to believe it yourself. Jennings was not comfortably beating Rivas despite Frank saying this dozens of times leading up to the 02 card last week. Rivas was…
